Fruit-full event encourages fresh, healthy eating

Dole’s “Get Up and Grow Together Tour” celebrates fruits, vegetables and healthy eating. The caravan will be in the Spokane area and North Idaho Saturday through Monday, making stops at local grocery stores.

At each stop, visitors will be able to sample smoothies, salads, sides and desserts, including Pine-Berry Spice Punch, Broccoli and Fruit Slaw, and Cafe Banana Frappe.

In the Kid’s Corner, children and parents can create healthy recipes. There will also be fruit and veggie trivia, a photo booth and a healthy living challenge.

The challenge encourages people to pledge to eat healthier, then recruit friends to compete as a team to win a tasting and teaching culinary party.

Visitors with a receipt showing a qualifying purchase of Dole fresh produce will receive a gift, such as a Get Up and Grow T-shirt or a portion plate.

The tour will make five stops in the region:

10 a.m.- 1 p.m. Saturday, Rosauers at 2610 E. 29th Ave. in Spokane;

3-6 p.m. Saturday, Rosauers at 10618 E. Sprague Ave. in Spokane Valley;

10 a.m.- 1 p.m. Sunday, Super 1 at 305 Kathleen in Coeur d’Alene;
